UNDP Call for Applications: Open for Practice Parliament for Women in Maldives

Deadline: 29-Nov-21

The UNDP Maldives in partnership with People’s Majlis of the Maldives, with the support of the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has announced Practice Parliament for Women with an aim to provide an opportunity for women to build their capacity and confidence to participate in democratic processes, become change makers in their communities and eventually, contest for elected positions.

The Practice Parliament for Women hopes to enable women to be more involved in the decision-making processes in the country by increasing capacity development and training programmes for women active in the political arena to build their skills and knowledge to contest for elected positions.

Practice Parliament builds on the concept of experiential learning to provide the opportunity for aspiring individuals to learn by doing, build new network and allies through shared understanding, engage in dialogue with other individuals of the same cohort to further inform their values and perspectives, and enable them to acquire new skills at a practical setting.

The Practice Parliament series will consist of two components; a training component where participants are informed on the fundamentals of civic education, key parliamentary processes, and relevant policy issues, followed by a Practice Parliament Sitting where they perform parliamentary proceedings.

Objectives
The objective of Practice Parliaments is to enable participants to:

Identify the nuances in each policy issue, and guide how they need to manoeuvre within the complex political space to achieve a key facet in any democracy consensus.
Strengthen understanding of parliamentary processes to demystify the parliament and boost the confidence women and young people to contest for parliament.
Enhance knowledge on key policy issues to improve their ability to become effective change makers and legislators.
